m + m = match

I met a fellow-Ottawan named Mélanie Rebane on twitter a few weeks ago, and we got along great. Fast forward to last Tuesday when we met up in person. Four hours blew by — full of laughs, shop talk and everything in between, plus our own mini-shoot where John snapped the photo above.

And there you have it: John and I are stoked to have found a photographer for our Ottawa wedding partay! She’s just the right mix of spunk, warmth, fun and talent to capture what we’re sure will be a hoppin’ evening. (The fact that she goes by ‘m photography’ is pure coincidence, I swear — and a good omen, methinks!)

Mélanie specialises in small/boutique weddings…

family photos…

and maternity pictures…

Check out her website and blog for more.

I can picture Mélanie feeling right at home amongst our friends, engaging them to partake in some hammy posing… but then she obviously also has the eye and ability to capture some truly touching and candid moments. I can’t wait to see what she’ll come up with at our little shindig.

Even as she played with the settings on her fancy schmancy camera on the evening we met up, she took this quick shot of me:

It’s rare for me to think I look nice in a photo… but I really dig this shot. It bodes well for our wedding ‘do, doesn’t it!??

good peeps , , , , ,
